in reply to Regarding the "Comment" object in Perl's Win32::OLE

You'll probably find it helpful to use the following lines at the top of your code:

use warnings; use strict;
as you appear to be using a number of undeclared functions and your definition of $file1 is definitely incorrect - backslashes and double quotes don't do what you obviously expect.
A good thing for you to do right now would probably have a read of perlman:perldebug have a look at the values in your variables. Another tip would be to check the return values of your external calls - are you sure that $Word is defined before you call methods on it?

Update:I ran the code you supplied and it returns:

Undefined subroutine &main::b called at 422677.pl line 14.
So it looks like you haven't posted the exact code you're trying to run.

    I would guess that the functions "b" and "br" indicate that the line
    use CGI qw(:standard);
    is missing from the top of the OP's code. But that's just a guess.

      more like "blindingly obvious", I would think :) The trick is to get the OP to think through the problem - no-one learns from been spoon-fed answers.
